Angry New to BlackBerry and not nice..

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone,

I am new to the experience and I am not having a nice one...

I am trying to view videos on it and so far only some play...

For instance from my laptop, I go to YouTube, watch a video, download it to my lap as an .flv video using the RealPlayer button that appears above it.
Now I go and convert that video to .wmv and upload it to my and it will only play audio, never video.

I have tried several converters and none seem to do the trick. I have tried to modify the settings for the aspect ratio, the kbps and FPS and I keep getting audio only.
However, If I get a .wmv file by e-mail, and upload it to the it plays just fine.

.avi files and .mpeg I get an error message.



What could be the matter?

Your help will be GREATLY appreciated

Thanks a lot! Guess I sholda checkethe FAQs first, huh?

So basically, anything I have, if I convert it to 3gp (which is what the makes) should play, am I right?

Thanks again!
